Memories of grain elevators

Sometimes memories of grain elevators go beyond simply delivering grain. In 1962, I was unloading a truckload of wheat at this former UGG elevator in Rosthern when I received a phone call from my father telling me that my mother had just delivered a set of twin boys. It was a surprise to everyone, including the doctors, that she had twins. I still associate this elevator with that phone call. I took this "updated" photo on August 19, 2015. (If only I'd taken a photo in 1962.)
